The New Hatteras GT Series

LAUNCHING A NEW GENERATION OF LEGENDS!

When Willis Slane launched the first fiberglass sportfishing boat in 1960, he established a solid foundation for what has become the world’s leading builder of luxurious convertibles and motoryachts. During the 50 years since, the 41-foot Knit Wits hit the water, numerous Hatteras models have so proven their mettle offshore that they remain industry benchmarks.

Today, that never-ending quest for perfection has brought the fleet to new heights and given birth to the new Hatteras GT Series. Thanks to intelligent engineering, innovative layouts and advancements in construction technology and hull design, these models are sure to thrill anyone looking for speed, style, a soft ride, long-lasting quality,and a rock-solid hull.

The new Hatteras GT Series is comprised of three models, the new GT54, the redesigned GT60, and the new GT63. This exciting family of tournament-class convertibles is designed for serious anglers and comes to market with best-in-class performance, unforgettable styling, and a construction pedigree that has made Hatteras Yachts the gold standard.

We invite you to take a closer look at these legends in the making!

Tournament Speed

GT63

The Hatteras GT Series is about unsurpassed performance and seakeeping. Each model in the series has a minimum top-end speed of 41 knots at full load, a 36-knot cruise, and range exceeding 400 nm. This performance is made possible by utilizing resin infusion technology in our solid fiberglass bottom hulls. This provides increased strength while allowing the boat to be much lighter than a traditional hand-laid vessel. Achieving these speeds while preserving our legendary ride, these convertibles represent the next generation in hull design from Hatteras.


Classic Styling

GT54

Design began with a study of generations of Carolina-built classics to create a forward-thinking design. As a result, the Hatteras GT Series is a showcase of style that harkens back to the grand years of sportfishing and family cruising. Each model features a striking bow flare, a well proportioned foredeck and sleek deckhouse, as well as tumblehome aft. In essence, we’ve updated the look of the Carolina-style boat. The distinctive styling is so timeless, we believe convertible lovers will be admiring the lines for years.


Fishability

GT60

Equipped to meet the standards of the most competitive anglers, these cockpits are designed for improved fishing as well as increased relaxation. Mezzanine seating is designed for comfort and cockpit features include a dedicated tackle center, in-deck fish boxes, and a recirculating live well at the transom. Stowage is excellent, with compartments for gaffs and boat hooks along with ample rod storage. Teak is available for the coaming boards and cockpit sole for those who want to play up the GT Series’ distinctive design.

Hatteras Pedigree
In keeping with Hatteras style, the comfortable accommodations found on these boats feature thoughtful layouts and luxurious amenities. Underneath these dashing good looks, the Hatteras commitment to quality construction continues with a no-compromise build philosophy. Each model in the GT Series is made in the Hatteras tradition, with robust electrical and mechanical systems, and incredibly durable hulls that are resin-infused for light-weight strength and performance.
